Trope Pantheons Discussion

Go To

Welcome to the Trope Pantheons thread! Please read the rules:

    open/close all folders 

    Rules 
Rules. The following are not suggestions or tips, but things that have to be followed:
  • Gods can't be followers or high priests for obvious reasons.
  • When you suggest a God, please explain why they fit the trope. Not everyone is going to understand just "X should be the God of Y because they exemplify the trope" off the bat, especially if they're unfamiliar with the work.
  • No hype profiles, please.
    • So you ask, what exactly is 'hype profile'? It is a profile based on ongoing events that hasn't been around very long, but generates a lot of hype, possibly because of elements such as Wham Episode or Memetic Mutation or Large Ham or overall 'OMGAWESOME!!!' They're all not bad tropes, but building a portfolio solely for that is a bad idea, as they do not say a thing about representing the trope best (unless it's those trope concepts that they are trying to embody for a long time). You can see one if the profile is only showing off how awesome they are or suddenly pushing how 'significant' they are thanks to the just very recent events rather than respecting the longstanding good representations of the trope. And usually having... minimum portfolio or flavor texts and being a bit too generalized or self-contained to events from within their home series instead of interacting with other Pantheon members.
  • The Pantheon is not a mouthpiece for you to voice your opinions on certain characters. You may like certain characters more than others, but don't make the profiles for characters you like look like Character Shilling.
  • DO. NOT. put a link to these Pantheon pages into the main wiki page. The moment you want to add in a main Characters page that the character is a God of this trope, don't do it. If you see leftovers of this practice, do yourself a favor and delete it from that main page. This also goes to the Trivia page. The only exception to this rule is if a page in the Pantheon could be confused for a page in Main, like Good Colors, Evil Colors and Good & Evil Colors.
  • You must use the Trope Pantheons discussion thread in the forums if you wish to add a new deity, story, something else of importance to the Trope Pantheon canon, or reworking an existing deity (be it simply improving their existing profile or changing their title).
    • For new and reworked deities, 3 [tup] means the profile will have a one week waiting period.
    • For new and reworked deities, 4 [tup] is a 3 day waiting period.
    • 5 [tup] is an automatic ascension for new and reworked deities.
    • Speaking of reworks, for anyone that wants to improve such profiles, they have to review the current trope the character(s) has and see if it still holds up or if there is a better rep for their trope.
    • For adding new Treasures to the Treasures or new Dominions to the Dominions, the following rules apply:
      • For new Treasures or Dominions, 3 [tup] is a 3 day waiting period.
      • 4 [tup] is an automatic addition to the Treasures or Dominions.
  • Do not include fan reception in any profiles. It has nothing to do with the character themselves and will create unnecessary conflict.
  • Write a detailed explanation on why the character is the best candidate for deity of that trope. If people disagree with you, do not force it on the people.
  • Keep in mind that if you still want to try to find a trope for a particular character, you're only given three chances on such. If a suggestion goes past three possible tropes, then it will come off as shoehorning a character into the Pantheon just for the sake of that character to be there.
  • Rule of Cautious Editing Judgment ALSO applies here. Do not bring things that would incite fights, even if it is what's currently the hot topic and might be 'urgent'. For example, the political scene and some really bad politicians. We are not here to fight at each other, so don't suggest things that go to that direction.
  • Do not create a trope page for a story until the story is fully completed.

    Instructions and Tips 
Here are some tips one should keep in mind when editing:
  • Please use the Trope Pantheons discussion thread in the forums if you wish to add a new deity, story, or something else of importance to the Trope Pantheon canon. You can also get some assistance in the forum thread. Submissions that are added without discussion are likely to be deleted.
  • If the character you are about to add to a House already exists in another, make sure to mention that this god has spots in other houses as well.
  • When writing facts/trivia about gods, try not to contradict what has already been written elsewhere.
  • When writing down the name of a Theme Song, try to avoid calling it "Theme of God X" or "Theme of (Show where God X originates from)". If possible, try to find out if the song has an actual name.
  • When adding an image for your God, make sure that it is not too big unless you wish to write more about the god you have chosen.
  • If you feel the need to remove a god for some reason and replace him/her with another, please see what the other tropers think about this in the discussion thread before doing anything hasty. If you're lucky (and they're from the same franchise), maybe both of them can share the title "Gods of (Insert Trope Here)".
  • Certain tropes can have more than one God. It is not advisable, but it is not forbidden. Just ensure that this second God will bring in new flavor of the trope. If you have doubts on how to bring the other flavors, consult the Trope Pantheon Discussion forum. Case in point: In the original Greek Mythology (and later Roman Mythology), both Ares/Mars and Athena/Minerva share the title of 'God/Goddess of War', and even then, they differ in flavor: Ares is about brutal warfare, Athena is about war strategies and finesse, while Mars took up some of Athena's elements that he kinda differs out than Ares. If the original myth can do this, why the hell not for the Pantheon?
  • Be creative! If you need some time to work out your potential deity's profile, use the Pending Gods or Pending Gods 2 page to get help. Incomplete and/or low-quality entries are more likely to get deleted or replaced.
  • When writing about a God who just happens to be a person in real life, just try to be very careful about what you decide to say. See also the Rules section. Especially the 1st bullet point.
  • All deities should be sorted by their divine ranking. Put Overdeities on the top of the page and Quasideities on the bottom. Also be sure to add them in alphabetical order by their first/given name.
  • Occasionally there will be Gods that carry a title without a trope. This is not forbidden, but it's well advised not to abuse them. Aside from introducing too many niche concepts, there are still chances for new tropes related to your chosen deity's title to be launched through YKTTW...
    • Additionally however, the only house that a tropeless profile are wholly allowed is the House of Food. Mainly due to most food items lacking tropes, and adding tropes about said foodstuffs is slightly unecessary. However, the character being ascended for their choice of a food, or food-related thing must be a decently good representative of said item. IE: Their Trademark Favorite Food, or something that they're closely associated with In-Universe, or both (example: Gangplank and his oranges).
  • Maximum number of tropes what a god should have is three, but don't try to abuse that fact. If you need to use a second trope to specify a certain thing about their position, that can be excused.
  • Some series will eventually have greater representation in the Pantheon than others. This is unavoidable, but a little diversity helps, as well. Try to ensure that if you add a deity from a popular series, make sure that it's because they're a good representative for the trope in question, and not just because they're connected to another deity in their respective canon.
  • As far as deities from actual mythologies (Greco-Roman, Norse, Japanese, etc.) are concerned, try not to replicate the default myths about their characters and use a fictional counterpart instead. In other words, if you want to use the Greek/Roman god Ares/Mars, you can't add him as the "God of War", but you can use him as part of another trope as long as it's a different version of him. For example:
    • Zeus, while having elements of his persona from Classical Mythology, draws more from his portrayal in the God of War Series.
    • Thor and Loki's Pantheon portrayals are influenced heavily by their appearances in their Marvel Comics series.
    • Amaterasu is a woman in her Japanese mythology portrayal, but her Pantheon counterpart is the dog goddess from Ōkami.
  • Don't depend too much on the hype/meme train, don't just jump onto that train willy-nilly in order to put on some events or entry in the Pantheon. It might not last very long or represent the trope best. This is Trope Pantheons, not Trope Hype Train!
  • Unless the character proposed is specifically from the Abridged version, the character should represent the tropes in their canon selves. If they also happen to possess the trait of the Abridged self, good! But otherwise, get the abridged stuff onto just the flavor texts.
  • To prevent any surprising need to rework profiles due to new development, please restrain from ascending gods from a series before the thing is either released or for longer-running series, there is a good enough of a break from story. This also applies to already existing series if there is a new thing coming out.
  • Please be sure to ask in the discussion about what you want to work before making the profile. This is done to see if your proposal is the best representative and so, in case your profile is turned down, you don't waste time writing something that others might not find suitable.
    • In the same vein, if you adopt a profile from another troper, it is recommended that you make an announcement that you have done so on the discussion thread. More often than not, a trope that was reserved for something was given away to someone else.
  • It is much more recommended to word the title like "God of X" instead of "The God that Xs". This will give off the vibe the God actually ruled over that trope instead of just 'did X', giving more credentials to how it's the best example of the trope.

    Divine Ranking System 
  • Overdeity: Omnipotent-level Reality Warpers capable of manipulating the entire universe (or at least the world) at will. Within their own universe they are believed to be omnipotent, or at least impossible-to-completely-destroy embodiments or concepts.
  • Greater Gods: High-level Reality Warpers and that are extremely powerful (capable of destroying or changing anywhere from a large city to a planet at will) and very strong non-reality warpers capable of doing the same thing.
  • Intermediate Gods: Deities at this level are capable of strong but specialized powers such as hydrokinesis, pyrokinesis, etc. without major drawbacks and low level Reality Warpers capable of affecting their immediate area at will.
  • Lesser Gods: Capable of highly specific or little power on their own, or suffer from Power at a Price. However, they may be able to ruthlessly exploit their power or combine it with just being badass enough to make up for it.
  • Demigods: Basically the Badass Normals of the pantheon, making up for their lack of abilities with strength, strategy, and/or planning.
  • Quasideities: Any otherwise normal human, human equivalent, or below without any special powers or training will fall here.

    Deity Template 
Template for adding a new deity:

God X, God/dess of (Insert Trope Here) (Alternate names/Nicknames, Fan Nickname)

  • An image, if possible. Please use official art or a screenshot for a picture.
  • Potential House:
  • Rank: This can range from Quasideity, Demigod, Lesser God, Intermediate God, Greater God, to Overdeity. This doesn't always have to be a representation of power, but it can also represent influence in the Pantheon.
  • Symbol: An image or icon used to represent the deity.
  • Theme Song: Song that usually is used in affiliation with the character. If the deity is a musician this will most likely be their Signature Song. If possible, give a link for reference, preferably on YouTube.
  • Alignment: Good, evil, neutral etc. Forget about The Great Character Alignment Debate here, the Pantheon is one of the few places where you can assign Dungeons & Dragons alignment to characters that don't have alignment system. After all, the Pantheon is based on D&D.
  • Gender: For Pokémon deities only. Defines the gender of the Pokémon; if genderless, it instead defines what gender they identify as.
  • Ability: Provides the Pokémon's ability. If they can Mega Evolve, the new ability is listed as well.
  • Moves: Defines the four moves used by a Pokémon. A Z-Move may also be listed.
  • Portfolio: Tropes associated with the character.
  • Domains: Things that the character has influence over.
  • Herald: Non-ascended loyal character that is from the same series as the ascended character.
  • High Priest: Non-ascended like heralds, but not from the same series, and can serve as a worthy replacement in case something would happen. They can be served as part-time workers in case the originals are busy with some jobs. Co-Godhood is accepted depending on the approval of the originals, usually if the co-deity is from the same series.
  • Followers: Non-ascended characters that are not part of the Pantheon, but would probably worship this character by the fact that they share the ascended character's trope.
  • Allies: Members of the Pantheon that are allies.
  • Rivals: Members of the Pantheon that are rivals.
  • Enemies: Members of the Pantheon that are foes.
  • Additional Character Relationships: Members of the Pantheon that have various relationships (examples include Enemy Mine, Vitriolic Best Buds, Teeth-Clenched Teamwork, Headbutting Heroes, Friendly Enemy, Friendly Rival, Just Friends, etc.) other than allies, rivals, or enemies.
  • Partner: Defines a partnership with an ascended deity and Pokémon.
  • Respected by/Respects: A deity whom the members of the Pantheon respect or are respected by.
  • Pitied by/Pities: A deity whom the members of the Pantheon feel pity for or find pitiable.
  • Opposed by/Opposes: Not necessarily the same as "Enemies", but this is used for any deity whom the members of the Pantheon directly opposes or is opposed by, regardless of alignment.
  • Conflicting Opinion: Sometimes, the Deities argue over specific themes and philosophies.
  • Add the Intro. The intro is made up of two trivia, the Ascension Text (or just the Ascension) and The Bio. Both are necessary, but which order you use for them may vary depending on the profile in question. It may be better for one profile to have The Bio first and the Ascension second or vice-versa, although for the most part the order is irrelevant:
    • The Ascension Text: This the story of how the character got into the Pantheon and/or was ascended. There are many ways for this to happen. They may be tricked into it or have simply wandered into the Pantheon, they may have had an already ascended character bring them in, they may already be in the Pantheon (via being another deity's Herald or sharing a trope) and got "promoted", or some combination of the above. Anything is possible in the Pantheon, so use your imagination, but try to incorporate their trope into the story, if possible.
    • The Bio: A brief synopsis on the character's backstory. No need for the character's entire life/production history, but just give enough that those who don't know the character can get an idea of how the character works.
  • Now add some random trivia/facts about events/alignments/moments/fights/friendships/relations etc.
  • And some more trivia/facts.
  • And a couple of more.

A crossover doesn't mean something is canon. It's just a collaboration.

It's canon if you believe in the fictional Multiverse theory. Which btw, Ryu is definitely a pretty good contender for most crossovers

I’ve always had my own discription of how the multiverse works. Think a universe is a ever expanding book page, while a multiverse is the book itself that seems infinitely growing more pages. Then think of the omniverse as a bookshelf that is filled to the brim with multiverse books.

With how the Pantheon grows and expands with each new addition to its line up I wonder if the Pantheon itself is alive. A type of cells in a living organism thing.

And I always imagine that, despite the place not being digital itself, the House of Gaming would glitch occasionally. Hitbox Dissonance, broken/missing textures, the like.

@ Mogo: Perhaps something involving Wander and Sylvia? I remember one episode where they encounter a living planet named Janet. She took a liking to Wander and tried numerous times to get Sylvia out of the picture though she eventually she wizened up to how she can't just force relationships like that. Perhaps the two could encounter Mogo in their travels and be reminded of her.

Chronos, God of Time (Keeper of Time, Khronos, Chronus, Clockwork God, Zen)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chronos_smite.jpg
SPOILER 
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: A complex formation of gears behind a clock. Alternatively, a giant clock tower with a large mechanical spider on top of it.
  • Theme Music: The Infinite
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Time Master (And The Primordial Deity of It), One of the Protogenoi, Master of Western Zodiac, Winged Humanoid or Three-Headed Serpent, Common Theme for Clock Punk
  • Domains: Time, Gears, Zodiacs, Gods
  • Allies: The Doctor, Tatsuya Suou
  • Enemies: Gods who try to mess with time (like Caius Ballad), Nyarlathotep, The Vex
  • Mixed on: Both the members of SEES and Investigation Team, Zen and Rei.
  • Some gods wonder why such an old deity, being the god of time and the one who helped create the universe, would make himself to be known by other younger deities. Some say that it started in the Battlefield of the Gods, where he started fighting against other gods, most likely for the fact that their conflict started mess with the concept of time.
    • Upon seeing other gods from the Battlefield of the Gods ascend into the Trope Pantheon, he started noticing gods related to time: most notably, those who would abuse, erase and even destroy time itself, which he wouldn't accept.
  • Some old believes have stated that Chronos is actually a serpent with heads of a human, a bull and a lion. Where Chronos has not said anything on this, he might have chosen this form so that he wouldn't scare every one.
  • Besides being the god of time, Chronos has nothing against The Doctor. He, for one, can say that time really is a wibbly wobbly Timey-Wimey Ball.
  • For whatever reason, he feels really uncomfortable around Nyarlathotep, thinking that some one has used his powers to fight him in the past. He believes that the boy Tatsuya Suou knows the answer.
  • In another universe, Chronos is the god who covens over both time and death who guides the souls of the deceased to afterlife. After part of him separated himself from him to become the boy named Zen and sealed him away, Chronos used SEES and Investigation Team as pawns to free him so that he can become whole. Where the two teams defeated him and the fragment of him went to the afterlife, he doesn't feel that strong of a hate for them. He has also given up on his other self and left Rei alone.
  • For such an old deity, he is surprisingly fragile. However, he makes this up by the fact that he can rewind his own time, putting him back in shape like nothing had happened.
  • Likes to remind every one that the "H" in his name is important. There have been many who have confused him for the titan Cronus.
  • As a primordial, he's one of the few beings that most of the other god-killers in the Pantheon try to avoid, even though he can be temporarily killed, he is time.
  • Some people say that he was once kidnapped to serve the Hellbourne in the Forests of Caldavar, emulating the style of Darkterror, the Faceless Void. Chronos remarks that this 'Chronos' does have interesting abilities, but they are not the same. Otherwise, he'd be using the experience he had in Caldavar and be goddamn OP in the Battlefield of the Gods... And he already has, given enough time.

And here Is was hoping we could go one page without a profile. Shows how wrong I am.

Here are some MLP snippets I plan on adding in. Nothing spoilery about Endgame, don't worry.

First off, Daring Do. Taking My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic S9 E21 "Daring Doubt" into consideration, which is her last onscreen appearance as a character.

  • It wasn't long before a shattering revelation about Daring's work was revealed: she isn't really as heroic as her books make her out to be. The artifacts she liberated don't end up in museums, but in her private collection. Ahuizotl, her archnemesis, was actually guarding the artifacts from thieves like Daring. But—under an amulet that induces its holder to tell the truth—she honestly believed they were safer in her hooves than Ahuizotl's hands or museum security.
  • Ever since the truth of her stories was brought to light, her relationships with the other Adventurer Archaeologists of the Pantheon have since become... strained. Ironically, this is not the case with Nathan, who has had similar motives as Daring, and they've actually become closer friends as a result.

Second is Gilda. Since we never see her apologize to Fluttershy on-screen or in the comics, it will take place in the Pantheon instead. But the segment is incomplete.

  • Eventually, she got the chance after another attack from Roman and his Hired Guns crippled her wingsnote  and she required immediate medical attention. Fluttershy was the one tending to her, and she jumped on the chance. During the confession, after seeing the pegasus ward off an opportunistic goon with the Stare, the griffon also managed to ask to have the free hit offer on her by Agent 47 removed.

Yeah, I could use a little help, please.

If you can't get around it, go through it fast. Personas and Nanos, make 'em here

Any suggestions? Chica’s Magic Rainbow, God(dess?) of Rainbow Lite (The Rainbow)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_211.png
  • Intermediate God(dess?) (referred to as a female)
  • Symbol: Him/Herself
  • Theme Song: "Rainbow Theme" or “[Stone Cold
  • Alignment: Either Chaotic Neutral or Chaotic Evil, but is more often treated as the former
  • Portfolio: Bait-and-Switch Boss, Beware the Silly Ones, Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, Everything's Worse With Rainbows, Faux Affably Evil, Lives in a Crapsaccharine World where Everything Is Trying to Kill You, Jerkass, Light Is Not Good, able to Light 'em Up, Rainbow Lite, Sore Loser, Smug Smiler.
  • Allies (the ones that are reciprocated)) The Goose
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork/Rivals: Rainbow Dash
  • Enemies: Every ascended FNAF deity, The Kid, The SCP foundation and most of their their oddities, regardless of alignment
  • Fears: Necrozma
  • Annoys: Basically anyone who isn't listed anywhere else here
  • The Friend Nobody Likes in: The Indie Gaming Brotherhood
  • Chica’s Magic Rainbow is a, well, magical rainbow that is in the titular Mini-Game in Five Nights at Freddy’s World. The game may seem like a Sugar Bowl, but you couldn’t be more wrong, as Everything Is Trying to Kill You, with flowers that shoot their petals at you, bees that shoot laser beams, huge logs that fire out of nowhere and, despite what she says, even the rainbow tries to kill you, especially if you try to turn her voice off.
  • They ascended when a rookie SCP worker (likely a D-Class) noticed a three color rainbow in the sky. A weird sight, they thought, but nothing revolutionary. Then the rainbow came to life and started throwing insults at the worker, angry that they called them “nothing revolutionary”. Then the worker made the situation worse by insulting the rainbow back, saying that she is nothing compared to a sentient fridge or toaster. Upon hearing this she finally snapped, attempting to destroy the Pantheon with her rainbow cannon. Once more gods caught wind of this rainbow, they were quickly defeated when attempting to combat it. Upon revival, they reported the disturbance to the Main House, which made short work of the rainbow and brought it to the Court. After a fashion, Chica's Magic Rainbow was ascended into the Pantheon under the trope Rainbow Lite, much to the chagrin of those who had to fight her.
  • After a small break (she just got her butt kicked, after all), the rainbow took a look around the various houses and ended up meeting a goose honking at a blue pony. Once she discovered the scene, she decided to challenge the goose to a snark-off. After the goose got roasted so much it exploded, the rainbow talked to the pony, known as Rainbow Dash. Although the rainbow saved her, Rainbow Dash still doesn’t like her (She only had 3 colors, after all, andRainbow Dash doesn’t find that very impressive). They do try to work together, but their teamwork is even more teeth-clenched then Gallem and Darkon, and that’s saying something.
  • One deity who hates this rainbow with a burning passion is The Kid because of the fact the she give them Heroic BSO Dbecause of reminding them of their previous adventures. Not wanting to take chances, he asked the goose to steal some of the weapons from the treasure vault. The goose oddly followed the kid’s orders (Not before honking up a storm) and brought some weapons, which The Kid made into a makeshift turret and blew the rainbow to kingdom come. Oddly, despite this and the above incident the Rainbow and the goose are still friends.
  • She despises Necrozma, due to being able to absorb light. Funnily, when she found out that its true form does the exact opposite, she began to bully Necrozma about how she is invincible to its attacks, needless to say, she was proven wrong, HARD

@Azure Is there some reason Mogo would have special feelings about the DBZ gods? Is it because they live on little planets like King Kai?

@Crownless Wander and Sylvia are probably good. And that idea of the Pantheon being alive is super interesting!

It's time to stop being selfish. The world needs Lex Luthor.

[up] Technically, that's not a new idea. Primus reportedly forms the entire surface of the Pantheon as stated in his profile.

Do not underestimate the might of the Empire. Zaarin is dead for treason. You had best learn from his example, Captain.

[up][up][up] I’m talking about how DBZ consist of Civilization Destroyers and/or Planet Busters. The villains are kind of trigger happy about it too.

  • Complicated Relationship: The Tactician
  • From the Republic to the Empire, from the Clone Wars to the Galactic Civil War, this is the definitive model of mook the entire omniverse of fiction has seen. The 501st Legion was known far and wide for its military and tactical capabilities, especially their creativity on the battlefield, rendering them some of the most loyal and capable soldiers in the Grand Army of the Republic. After Order 66 was enacted and the Great Jedi Purge carried out (with the help of those very same troopers), all that was wiped clean as the aging clones were replaced by fresh new human recruits to serve as Imperial stormtroopers. What was once a stellar unit serving under General Anakin Skywalker, Commander Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex had degraded into the still exemplary yet lacklustre personal unit of Darth Vader, chief enforcer of Emperor Palpatine.
  • After seeing the House of Defense resembling a pigsty for the 37th time in a month, Captain America sought a restructuring of the House, with the goal of creating a unified infantry corps to police and enforce discipline throughout the Pantheon. However, the many dossiers and troop reports in the Defense archives were so out-of-date that it was impossible to draft any sort of re-organization plan. He switched gears and decided to find an already unified force to serve. Darth Vader (a GUAE spy at the time), seeing a chance to advance his master's agenda, offered his squadron. Captain America, glad that he could finally sleep again, agreed. And so it was the 501st Legion, Vader's Fist, the vaunted personal unit of Darth Vader himself, was ascended into the Pantheon.
    • Emperor Palpatine requested that Vader ascend the entire Imperial Stormtrooper Corps as well as its First Order successors into the Pantheon. Vader knew that would be unrealistic as that would mean ascending a party numbering in the millions, the very idea of which the Court would find unacceptable even if they were ascending under the trope Mooks. Hence, he defied his master's orders, a quiet show of insubordination that would eventually lead to him splitting ties with Sidious and later the GUAE entirely . Palpatine was displeased that Vader hadn't at least tried to appeal to the Court for leniency, but he took one look at the strength report of the 501st and went:
    Palpatine: So be it, Lord Vader. But see to it that your men are stationed in every area of our godly abode, enforcing everything that transpires in our wake. Do not make me regret having them ascended under such a humiliating title.
  • Applies to all of them:
    • While most of them are former clone troopers and/or stormtrooper recruits (possibly including First Order stormtroopers in Imperial-era armor), a small percentage started off as cosplayers with really, really good costumes. Of course, these are members of the original fan group called the 501st Legion that lent its name to the esteemed group. If said fan club members want to be part of the real 501st Legion, they have to have at least 5 years of prior military experience. Lord Vader doesn't want ordinary schmucks in the 501st.
    • They are currently stationed in most areas of the Pantheon, serving as its premier peacekeeping force, performing regular patrolling, defusing riots, and performing the majority of arrests in small cases. At least one 501st garrison is stationed in each House of the Pantheon, with the largest one serving the House of War. Until recently they served as the main infantry of the GUAE reporting to Vader, but when Vader resigned his commission in the GUAE after his status as a GUAG agent was exposed, he took most of the 501st with him. Their primary temple in the House of War only acts as a supplementary training centre, most of their operations are centred in the House of Defense.
    • Note that these non-partisan duties extend to routine military action and response, specific duties such as dealing with Eldritch Abominations are best left to those with that specialty, such as the SCP Foundation and Men In Black. They aren't always successful with stronger deities, however. Their armor makes them essentially Immune to Bullets, but who in the Pantheon uses a gun? Well, a lot, but mostly those guns have either proven superior to their armor or other abilities (including shooting at terrain that can kill them just as easily) they have offset that.
    • As the Pantheon's resident non-aligned military force (for the most part), the 501st is one of the few deities who can outright have allies of all alignments without anybody hating them outwardly. There is resentment towards them, but any deity that takes action against them receives strict punishment. Lord Brevon is rumoured to have been on the receiving end of this after his invasion of the Main House, as are those responsible for the three times their members were completely exterminated. The GUAE often uses their role as a way to access important Pantheon places and objects, though checks and balances are in place to prevent massive security breaches.
    • While they officially defer to Vader, they also take orders from anyone of sufficient authority, good or evil. This extends to all members of the Main House and House of Defense. The most elite squads occasionally receive missions from the Progenitors, which is itself a rare opportunity. Before that, they reported to the Holy Trinity of Dream of the Endless, Haruhi Suzumiya and Eru Ilúvatar.
    • People were worried about the needless deaths that could happen from Vader's outbursts of anger and assertions of failure (i.e. force-choking them to death). Vader doesn't really engage in such slaughter anymore, but is still prone to snapping if the 501st repeatedly goes below his impossibly high standards. They are the elite after all, so they should not fail too often if they have prepared sufficiently.
    • In the case of Ahsoka Tano, especially since they now know that Vader pre-Mustafar was her master and former commander Anakin, they follow her orders the same way they do Anakin, though it's clear that this working relationship is more out of professionalism than a clear sense of camaraderie.
    • Trained under some of the best military officers and combat experts in the Pantheon. However, none have stayed long due to personal commitments, Batman being a prominent example. Their current commanders besides Vader and Ahsoka are Grand Admiral Thrawn, who leads the remnants that continue serving the Grand United Alliance of Evil and Taskmaster, their main combat instructor. Thrawn's pride in them, especially the First Legion (see below), coupled with the Taskmaster's photographic memory and skills in dealing with metahuman entities have made the formerly weak force in comparison to other forces in the Pantheon into an army fully capable of dealing with the many threats in the Pantheon without being humiliated.
    • They've had their share of difficult commanding officers, but at the top of all of them is the Tactician. If they happen to be in the battle area, the Tactician would either just ignore them, use them as meatshields for his/her own troops, or put them under the same "umbrella of protection" (i.e. don't let any one of them die). If they're under his/her command, s/he is hard pressed to keep every single one of them alive.
    • Nearly wiped out three times:
      • First was after 100 Baneblades charged inside the Pantheon, no doubt led by a tactical geni-CREEEEEEEEEEEEEED!!!!;
      • Second, after some pilot who hijacked a nuke-loaded Gundam shot them with it (GATOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!)
      • Third was after their initial involvement with the Godmodder's attack on the Pantheon. In the middle of a full-scale civil war in the House of War which spread to the entire rest of the Pantheon no less.
    • Not to be confused with that other 501st. Thought once the second-in-command of the 501st Joint Fighter Wings, Mio Sakamoto, ascended, she was made into the personal trainer of the 501st Legion alongside Taskmaster. They commend that where she is rather strict in training, she is surprisingly nice to them all things considered.
  • Applies to specific units/individuals:
    • You'd be hard-pressed to find an actual individual among the 501st. Since the majority of them are from the age of the Empire, they've been indoctrinated with the values of conformity and compliance, which extends to their blank, white armor and overall lack of identity.
    • However, there are some special little snowflakes that stand out from the crowd, the clones that stayed on from the era of the Clone Wars. None of the clones listed under individual members aside from Appo, the trooper who led the raid on the Jedi Temple have been identified as of yet. Appo is reportedly trying to encourage individualism in his personal squadron to repent for the atrocities he committed slaughtering thousands of Jedi, in direct defiance of the Emperor's orders.
    • Despite Darth Vader's redemption and Heel–Face Turn, Captain Rex has not yet renewed relations with his former commander and as such is not regarded as a member of the 501st in the Pantheon. However, most Clone Wars-era 501st members look back on him fondly, and proudly defer to him whenever they have to work with the Rebellion. Despite the Imperial's best efforts, a memorial of sorts has been erected in the 501st's temple honouring Rex.
    • Being a legion for operating under Vader in any and all environments in the Pantheon, the 501st obviously has its share of Elite Mooks. These include shoretroopers, snowtroopers, jumptroopers, magma troopers, riot troopers, sandtroopers, scout troopers and swamptroopers. The most elite of them all are death troopers, unquestionably loyal soldiers donning black armor who serve as security detail for prominent Imperial officers in the Pantheon, ascended or non-ascended. The most prominent units serve ascended officers Director Krennic and Thrawn.
    • In addition to these routine duties, the death troopers also serve as the first line of defense for any Imperial resources in the Pantheon, primarily stationed around the Vault to defend the Imperial Missile Boat.
    • Another cream of the crop unit is the First Legion, the unit that personally escorts Darth Vader and any officers serving aboard his flagship, the Super Star Destroyer Executor. As such, they have well-toned temperaments and behaviour to remain under the radar and escape punishments from Vader. Any troopers here that fail to meet expectations are either demoted and returned to the general 501st and/or executed (especially if treason is suspected). Commanding officer Kimmund already has his hands full with smoothing relationship between the Legion and his superiors and now he's in a Forever War? Pretty clear why the First Legion had three previous commanders in quick succession. They are rarely distinguishable from other stormtroopers, with their only noticeable traits being that their primary vessel is a repurposed Separatist freighter.
    • Finally, we have Task Force 99, or SCAR Squad, a special ops team specializing in missions requiring unorthodox skills. Each member of the squad specializes in specific tactics, making them perfect pair-ups with other counterparts in the Pantheon, such as the Suicide Squad and Rogue One. Sergeant Kreel, one of the best examples of Badass Normal within the legion, is perfectly capable of battling with a lightsaber.
  • Serve as the bulk of the forces in the House of Defense.
I am a stormtrooper. My skin is my armor. My face is my helmet. My name is my number. I am fulfilled, for I am an agent of the Emperor.

Do not underestimate the might of the Empire. Zaarin is dead for treason. You had best learn from his example, Captain.

[up]I think the picture should be of actual Storm Troopers since Vader is too prominent there.
